A spacious beach house designed for easy coastal living that’s great for families or friends and has a private hot tub and sauna, an on-site Street Food restaurant and the beach just a short walk away.
Tucked away on a gorgeous, quiet and unspoilt part of the Cornish coast, is a lovely resort designed for laid-back living. There are 15 beach houses here and the Seashell Four Bed Beach Houses are the largest, making them ideal for a multi-generational family or a group of friends. It’s a beautiful place to disconnect from modern life and reconnect with nature, enjoy coastal walks, days on the beach and water sports adventures. The three-mile stretch of beaches on St Ives Bay begin just a 5 to 10-minute walk away and take in swathes of sand, dunes and plenty of surf. Back at your beach house you can socialise in the open-plan, living area that extends outdoors to a decked area complete with a private hot tub, barrel sauna and barbecue. With an on-site Street Food truck, plus a host of extras available to book, from family surfing lessons to coasteering, your stay can be as relaxing or adventurous as you wish.

Why we love this

  • Large, private decked area with a sauna and hot tub
  • Quiet location on St Ives Bay, only a 5-minute walk to the beach

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Seashell Four Bed Beach Houses are bright and airy, with a beach house-inspired décor.

There’s a large, open-plan kitchen/dining/ living area which is a great social space for enjoying time all together. Get comfy on the huge sofa and watch TV, warm up beside the log burner or gather around the dining table for dinner. Meanwhile, the kitchen has a breakfast bar with stools to perch and keep the chef of your group company. And, it’s well-equipped with a double oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher.

These beach houses sleep eight guests in four bedrooms, but two extra children can be accommodated on the mezzanine levels. The master bedroom has a super-king-size bed, doors that open onto the decked area and an en-suite shower room. The other three bedrooms can either be set up with a super-king-size bed or two single beds. One of the three bedrooms has doors out to the decked area, while the other two incorporate a mezzanine level where a child can sleep on the futon bed. There is also a family bathroom with a bath, a separate shower, a WC and a basin. Plus, there is an additional WC in the hall.

Outside, on the private decked area that measures 141 square-metres, there is plenty of space to enjoy laid-back living. Relax in the private sunken hot tub or the barrel sauna, then cook up a leisurely lunch on the BBQ.
Beach towels are provided for use in the hot tub or down at the beach. Buckets and spades, fishing nets, bats and ball, beach cricket, a football, a frisbee and a windbreak are all included in your stay too, so your day at the beach will be even more fun.
And, if you’re bringing the dog along, dog beds and bowls are complimentary.

There is parking for 2 to 3 cars at the beach house.

The resort offers the following services and bookable extras to enhance your stay. Please contact our Guest Services Team for more information and prices.

Food and drink

The Street Food truck sells a range of snacks, sides, desserts and drinks. There’s an outdoor dining area or you can pre-book the delivery service to dine in the comfort of your beach house. There’s also a private chef service where a chef will come to your beach house with everything needed to cook a barbecued feast, a five-course tasting menu or whatever you desire (a minimum spend applies).

Pizza ovens

An Ooni pizza oven, plus a hamper of fresh pizza ingredients, will be dropped off to you so you can whip up tasty pizzas in minutes. The perfect combination of good food and good fun.

Surf lessons

Small group surf lessons are available, or a private one-to-one or family session can be booked. You can upgrade your lesson with tuition from the Head Coach or opt for water photography and videography to create a wonderful record of your lesson.

Water sports and beach equipment

A range of water sports equipment and beach equipment is available to hire including bodyboards, surf boards, stand-up paddleboards, fins, wetsuits, a beach volleyball set, a cool box, a beach parasol and a speaker and solar charger.

Other outdoor experiences

Book a guided coasteering experience for a fun and adrenaline-filled way of exploring local caves and gullies. For a gentler pursuit, there’s the wild foraging walk where you will learn all about nature’s larder and what’s safe to eat. In addition, you can hire fishing rods and tackle for a fishing trip, or a telescope to explore the night sky from the comfort of your beach house.

Baby pack

If you are travelling with your baby, you can make life easier by pre-booking the baby pack to save you bringing a potty, toilet seat and step, changing mat, baby bath, bottle steriliser and bottle warmer with you. A high chair and cot are also available on request and these are free of charge.

Access to your beach house is through a key code which will be provided to you prior to arrival. The Street Food truck and bar is a communal space available to all guests at the resort.

We plant a tree for every booking we make to help offset some of the carbon emissions generated by our stays.

There are steps down to the beach.

Please note that construction will take place at the site until the end of March 2024. The existing beach houses will still be available during and the site itself is fenced and enclosed by oak sleepers so little or no visual impact is expected. Every effort has been taken to prevent disruption to visitors but unavoidably there is the potential of noise from construction as well as traffic coming in and out. The beach houses most likely to experience disruption will be taken off sale whilst building work is taking place.

Location of 'Seashell Four Bed Beach House


The neighbourhood

The property is located at Gwithian Towans beach on St Ives Bay in Cornwall. The nearest supermarket is on the outskirts of the town of Hayle, while the centre of Hayle has more supermarkets and local shops where you can stock up on groceries.

Gwithian Towans is a quiet Cornish beach set along a sweeping 3-mile stretch of beautiful, sandy shoreline edged by dramatic cliffs and sand dunes. It’s also part of the South West Coast Path, so if you like walking or all things coastal, you’ll love it here. If you have your dog with you, many of the beaches are dog-friendly, although some have restrictions at certain times of the year.
